    LA Superior Court Judge Stephanie M. Bowick is a heartless, shady excuse of a judge in LA county. She’s the worst, most merciless judge that I’ve ever come across. She thinks she owes it to the rest of society to be as mean, shady and deceitful to all who have the misfortune of stepping into her courtroom.

    reversible error per se without the need to demonstrate actual

    That last comment was about Stephanie Bowick. I had the unfortunate experience of sitting in her courtroom for 2 hours. This woman looks in the mirror and REALLY likes what she sees. Vote her out of office!!!!
